RS media waist problem

Hi Guys

Im a newbie here and just seeking some professional help with my Rs media of course.

I recently bought a Rs media secondhand. It boots up properly but immediately he turns to his right side i.e his whole upper body turns 90% to this right and continues to do the intro,bowing. sensors, arms seem to work fine. 

Well, when i tilt him from side to side i can hear a clink spring sound. If i tilt him to his left his body moves smoothly back up straight, and to the right he stalls for about a split second then straight up. The L and R tilt buttons doesnt work.

If i put his body back to straight postion and tap the arm movements (L) it goes to the 90 degree angle immediately.

Walking is a problem of course cause he walks in a circle slowly cause of his body twisted.

Im assuming theres a problem with the spring and i need to open him up. Just thought there is a way out before i do that.

Any help will do please. i really want him to work, at least do things with a straight face :)

Hi there

As you can see in this pic this is the furthest range of motion he is able to go.
The other pic is when i use the left buttons. But he still tries to respond if i force him in the other direction.

I guess you right, time to open him

My findings so far..Nothing

The strings are very stiff. I makes a sound as it a spring is too tight and somebody is trying to stretch it.. although looking at it now it seems like a big problem.

Any suggestions
